Back to 1989…
Meta, Maxine, Madelaine, Matt and Tracy are going back to the eighties this week; November 1989 to be precise. Why? Wote Street is celebrating their 25th anniversary on 28th November…so join our nostalgia ride. This Friday, (28th November) our office will be transformed into a 1980’s office meaning the fax will be dusted off and the computers will go away (email and internet will be banished between 10am and 3pm). No smoking signs will be replaced with ash trays, hair will get bigger, as will our shoulders. Watch out for our tweets throughout the day…or please pop in and have a glass of bubbly with us.

We were as shocked as you when we read this headline. But, yes, a recent Gallup survey highlighted a worrying statistic from the worldwide workplace; 87% of employees worldwide are not engaged at work. It would appear that from full-time workers in Frankfurt, to shift-workers in Shanghai, to those in part time work in Basingstoke,[…..]
As a recruitment agency in Basingstoke, we love to meet up with other local businesses to build relationships and discuss current topics that affect us all. During our latest peer group discussion, the conversation soon turned towards the issues that can arise at Christmas… Professional party-goers Work Christmas parties are the ideal opportunity to celebrate[…..]
Who can remember life before Google?! Once upon a time, if you were looking for a job in Basingstoke you’d go to the yell.com website to search for a phone number…or maybe even scour the Basingstoke Gazette, community noticeboard, Thomson directory or Yellow Pages. These days, Google is so ubiquitous it’s basically become a verb.[…..]
